1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How best to bind a >3" thick book? on: November 03, 2010 07:22:44 AM
I just ran into a little bit of a dilemma...when I stacked up the paper and saw how thick it was!

This is going to be a wedding guestbook for a client, and the number of pages is pretty much set (one page for every guest at the wedding) The guests will be filling out a flat card at the event (a recipe for love fill in the blank card), and then the bride will insert the loose pages one per page afterwords. The recipe cards are 6" square, and theres not much room to change them.

I was hoping to make this just a simple hardcover, 7" square book. I have an image of the bookcloth I just ordered below. How should I approach this now, without making a stiff brick?? Should I reformat to a longer book, a 7" by 14" and cut the paper thickness in half, or is there a binding method anyone can wield this?  Huh

A very much improved shirt! Love the little bling details. I spose this is what I should be doing with the cheap shirts I find at target but never in my size!

(Also, I am shocked this is the first I've heard of the 135 year no snow in march thing, with all my family in minnesota. That is quite a record!)

cool, thats a great way to show off lovely yarns. Looks like it would be a bit heavy though?

Thats adorable! I love cupcakes, and I love cats. The pompoms were a clever thought too, they finally have a use! I don't know that my fluffy friend likes having a roof over her head though, boo.

That is super adorable. If I had it there would be many gushy and cheesy romantic moments to follow, haha. Maybe one day I'll have the skills to diy something like it. Until then I admire!

I love the pattern for this, it looks warm yet stylish. I do like the magenta, but damn I couldn't decide and need this jacket in five different colors, haha. Bright blue, bright green, some neutral like gray...mmm. My dream wardrobe demands large closet...
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cheap and frilly bag upgrades! on: March 09, 2010 04:44:55 PM
I'll be honest I did these last summer, but the pictures have been sitting on my hard drive unloved since. I think it's about time to share!





This was a stained ivory bag from my grandma (aren't they the best?) with a gold chain hideous strap. I dyed it my favorite color, then gave it a yarn and leather strap that I don't trust, haha. But this bag is super cool for those wanna be classy days. Now I just need to mod the purse I actually use every day!



This is my little camera bag. It was black and not something I every carried around unless I was adventuring outside with no where else to put it. I cut off some stuff, then painfully hand sewed a layer of pink mesh and a layer of amy butler loveliness. I also added ribbon and flowers on the front, AND added a pocked on the back! It holds my extra battery(and business card), and there is a pocket inside for memory cards. Also the ugly strap got hacked off and I made some old belt and more ribbon braided madness. This bag was the perfect size for my old camera, but now I have a a slightly larger cam with a neckstrap that only fits this bag when neatly folded. So it's unused ='(

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Help with a Repo! themed birthday party? on: January 30, 2010 11:48:43 AM
That is an awesome theme! A couple of my friends -love- that movie. I don't know if I have any party ideas, but maybe a couple things to keep in mind.
Blue, Pink/red, and black are the major colors, and it should be pretty easy to stick to that. Maybe people can dress up? Lots of makeup, fashion, obsession with looking good...makes me think of the game operation and barbie- operation barbie??? Hacking dolls apart, every barbie hating little girls dream! But keep sharp objects away from drunk people!
I would also have fun with propaganda, thats more a decoration thing than an activity though.
